The FIFA World Cup 2022 Round of 16 stage kicks-off on Saturday, December 3, with the Netherlands taking on the USA in the first match.
Group B topper Argentina will play Australia on December 4, while defending champion France also plays its Round of 16 match against Poland on December 4.
Eight teams will qualify from the Round of 16 and will progress to the quarterfinals, starting from December 9.
The United States hasn’t moved past the Round of 16 since 2002, with the Americans’ quarterfinal run being their best finish since 1930, and faces the Netherlands in the knockout stage opener on Saturday. Defending champion France is in action on Sunday.
Those who moved on will have to win four more games in order to lift the World Cup trophy and it’s win-or-go home with no draws in the knockout round. Games tied after 90 minutes will go to 30 minutes of extra time, and penalty kicks if things are still even after 120 minutes.
